Target is closing a metro Detroit store that the company has said is underperforming, according to a report from the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

According to the Star Tribune, the store located in Harper Woods will close next year and the company began notifying employees on Monday. That's in the Eastland Center.

In all, the company will close 12 stores, including another in Michigan, this one in Benton Harbor on the west side of the state, according to the Star Tribune.

It's all part of a plan to focus on smaller-format stores in urban and dense suburban areas and plans to open 35 stores in 2018, the Star Tribune reports.

The stores are expected to close on Feb. 3.
